Excellent. I love those Nov 78 shows. 11/24 is a wild ride too. Check the Shakedown.

But I find myself in the mood for Mr. Pen today, so I'm dialing up the Angels benefit from 1970..

>I love those Nov 78 shows.

Ah yes. A good month to see your first GD shows :-)

And yet, sigh, there seem to be no good full recordings of my Show Number One, 11/16/78, and only a partial of Number Two, 11/17/78, which is overshadowed by the Rambler Room that same day. What IS it with those shows?!? I swear a remember seeing tapers at the Uptown.

At least there's a good CM remix of 11/18/78. (Number Three! Yes, saw the whole run, except for the Rambler Room ... went from zero to 90 in one week.) Probably not a top 10 '78 show -- hard for me to judge, given the personal factor -- but a fun, hot show. Weirdly, I have the most vivid recollection of the DONNA song, which I didn't recognize at the time. (From the Heart of Me). I think I felt she was off vocally and was kind of perplexed by her singing, but that could be hindsight. I do remember her coming forward and singing. Maybe I just liked her hair and wanted to look like her, LOL.

There's some really interesting fly-on-the-wall stage banter at the end of that tune, when the SBD catches the boys cussing each other out. Truly pissed, or good-natured semi-pissed ribbing, or what? Who knows. Funny, though.


I think I remember reading that this is the show where Jerry met eventual-girlfriend-and-mom-of-child Manasha when she gave him a pumpkin from the audience. I remember roses during Jack Straw, when I was coming in, but don't remember any pumpkins ...

I stand corrected by Cliff (see above) -- call it TDIH-7.
